Hello there, hope you are keeping well!

As the seasons change, we need to update our wardrobe, purchase working from home attire, knitwear, casual pieces and warm outwear. There has been a massive increase in online shopping, so I pivoted my business to adapt and meet the ever growing need to work virtually.

As a trained personal stylist, I work with you to fill the gaps in your wardrobe for the season. I select clothes for you online that fit and flatter you, ensuring they complement your bodyshape, colouring and lifestyle. For best results, have your colours and bodyshape analysed prior (Both services are also available virtually)

Wardrobe Spring Clean!

The one thing I’ve been asked most during this lock-down, is how to declutter your wardrobe while #stayingathome. Now’s a great time to show your wardrobe some TLC by detoxing it.

Without further ado, here are my top tips of how to efficiently declutter your wardrobe:

Bring out all your Spring/Summer clothes, shoes and accessories.

You’re going to need to be objective and very decisive when reviewing your wardrobe.

  • Ask yourself a few questions:
  • Do you like the item of clothing, shoes, accessories? Does it fit and flatter you? If the clothes are more than 1 size too big or small, please release them. (Holding onto clothes that don’t fit you, does nothing for your self-esteem)
  • Does the colour suit you? Are they your best colours?
  • How do you feel wearing the clothes? Are you comfortable in the clothes?
  • Is it dated?
  • If your answers to any of the above is no, then it’s time to let them go!
  • Create 4 piles to sort out your wardrobe: Keep, Sell, Give, Charity:
  • Keep pile are for clothes you love, that fit you well and make you feel good.
  • Sell high-end pieces that no longer fit or you like, that are in great condition.
  • Give clothes and accessories to friends or family members who you know will love them.
  • Charity pile for unwanted clothes in good condition that can go to another home.

Bag the Sell, Give and Charity piles and make the necessary arrangements….

Rearrange your keep pile in your wardrobe by occasion: Work, casual wear and special occasion.

*Remember, the aim of decluttering your wardrobe is that you have a capsule wardrobe of clothes you love to wear!

#Stayingathomeinstyle

Hello! Hope you are keeping safe and healthy during this pandemic….

With our world in disarray, there is no better time to do whatever we can to stay positive: mind, soul and body

Most of us are working from home, except our medical heroes & frontline staff serving us and working to mitigate the effects of #COVID-19

As we are currently #socialdistancing, I thought to share a few practical styling tips that will brighten your day and lift your mood:

  • Wear colour at home– As Spring is upon us, wear bright beautiful colours! Colour is proven to lift our mood and make us happy.
  • Comfort is king– Wear soft breathable fabrics like wool, organic cotton, etc. that will keep you comfortable all day long! Avoid leather, polyester or any synthetic fabrics.
  • A set of co-ord loungewear is ideal for many of us attending virtual meetings. They are easy to wear, stylish and comfortable, so bag yourself a knitted co-ord set or beautiful matching pyjamas-style set.
  • Due to social distancing guidelines, I will be working remotely to facilitate virtual style consultations. I’m happy to have a FREE 20 minute chat with you or your friends via Skype or Zoom, if you’d like style advise or you are considering personal styling for Summer 2020

**Check out my #Spring2020 #stayingathome style tips!

And I’d love your help with something very special…

How to create a style that lasts a decade.

A warm welcome to February.

Yves Saint Laurent said it best: “Fashion fades, style is eternal!”

With that in mind, I have some practical style tips that will help you confidently create a timeless style that lasts a decade:

10 years in Style!
  • Embrace your Uniqueness.

You are unique; that is your power!

We live in a social media age where everyone is trying to look the same, but true beauty is being authentically you. Our quirks make us interesting. How boring would it be if we all looked the same? Accept yourself ‘flaws and all’ because perfection is a myth. Bin comparison this decade and remember; the beauty of YOU is that no one is like you; so, embrace YOU.

  • The Power of Colour

Wearing colour not only lifts your mood, it adds a beautiful natural glow to your face. Steer clear of wearing dark dreary hues that drain the colour from your face. There is a rainbow of beautiful colours that will brighten and lift your face naturally. This decade wear more colour! I promise you will look and feel better.

(To find out your best colours, have your Colours Analysed for just £99)

  • Body Beautiful

With the rise in cosmetic surgery and body ’enhancements’, there is no better time to swim against the tide and love the skin we are in. Whether you are a size 8 or 18, tall, petite, athletic, pear shaped, or curvy, you are beautiful! I have styled over three thousand people in over 12 years as a personal stylist and I am yet to meet a client I can’t style and help set on a journey of body confidence. Dressing confidently is about understanding your bodyshape and styling it in clothes that flatter and accentuate your shape.  Truth is, none of us will be how we were 20, 30 years ago or like celebrities who have assistance at their disposal. Accept and love your body as you are now. I hope the next time you look in the mirror you see how truly and uniquely beautiful you are.

  • Release!

Marie Kondo – tidying expert and author – encourages us to let go of anything that doesn’t spark joy. I’d like to add to that list: Let go of anything you haven’t worn in two years. Let go of anything that doesn’t fit or flatter you. Release clothes, shoes and accessories that no longer serve a purpose in your current lifestyle. That dress you wore when you were two sizes smaller does nothing for your confidence, so let it go! Let go of the past and embrace who you are today. We hold on to so much stuff that clutters our wardrobe taking up precious space, release them.  Our body is the only house we live in permanently. It’s so important you clothe yourself in pieces that serve you and lift your spirit. Let go and release anything that doesn’t. Less is truly more!

(To have your wardrobe decluttered, book a Wardrobe Detox consultation today)

  • Invest.

True style is timeless. Invest in quality pieces you can wear for at least 5 to 10 years. Durable pieces you can wear again and again that don’t date or fall apart.

Timeless pieces are kinder to the environment, because when you buy well, you buy less; which increases the cost per wear.

Avoid fast fashion, its disposable and the quality and manufacturing isn’t kind.

This decade I encourage you to; Invest in yourself – Invest in your style.
